How Treatment for Psoriasis Can Help with Skin Irritation and Scales

Published on June 13, 2012

Psoriasis can be a real confidence killer, but with treatment from our NYC dermatologist, you can get relief from this embarrassing and obvious skin condition. Psoriasis is an immune disorder that causes your skin to overreact to minor irritation and rapidly produce new skin cells. This skin doesn’t exfoliate naturally, so it piles up on the surface of the skin causing itchy, painful and scaly patches to develop in as little as three days instead of monthly.

Causes of psoriasis: While genetics may play a role, other causes include sunburns, stress and injuries to the skin.
